Cigar City Brewing’s newest release is inspired by a classic style of beer.
The Tampa, Florida-based brewery will be releasing Tampa-style Lager, a 5 percent ABV lager that is ‘Made for Drinkin.'”
“This Tampa-style Lager is inspired by the traditional German-style Helles, which translates to ‘light colored’, reads a label filed to the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB). “Perfect for the Florida heat, it’s a beer that’s made for drink in’ when it’s truly hotter than hellos outside.”
Cigar City is no stranger to the lager style, having released other examples in the past, including Hotter Than Helles Munich-style helles lager (5 percent ABV), Hoppier Than Helles Munich-style helles lager (5 percent ABV) and Lemongrass Ginger Helles Munich-style helles lager (5 percent ABV), among others.
According to the label, Tampa-style Lager will be released in 12-ounce cans. An email sent to the brewery for additional information was not immediately returned.
